Dear APELS board and members,

I am sorry to inform you the tragic passing of my colleague, my friend and a member of the board, Dr Hester Cheung on 2nd August 2016. She had been a tremendous contributor to our group since the inception and the abrupt end of her career will be devastating blow to all of us. I cannot express my sorrow with words. I hope her legacy will forever perpetuate in our hearts and that our work will carry on with the enthusiasm of her vision that she shared with us.

With deepest sadness,
Michael Li
Asia Pacific Endo-Lap Surgery Group
